Le Meridien Apartments in Makkah Saudi Arabia

Investors Provident (IP), a UK based property consultancy recently launched a rare and unique opportunity for Muslims to purchase 5* Le Meridien apartments in the sacred city of Makkah, Saudi Arabia

Working under the five star Le Meridien Hotel banner and in association with Saudi Amjad, a leading developer in the Middle East, Investors Provident have launched this groundbreaking and historic solution to cater for the increasing amount of accommodation problems in one of the world’s holiest cities.

The deluxe property will offer 1,335 studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, and feature separate prayer rooms for men and women, a health club, restaurants, high-quality shops and direct access to the Holy Mosque through a tunnel.

With over 2 billion Muslims worldwide praying to Makkah 5 times a day, this holy city is also the place where the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, was born and the place where God's message was first revealed to him. About 10 million Muslims visit Makkah annually. Tourism swells during the holy month of Ramadan and the month of Hajj, the pilgrimage to Makkah that is required of all Muslims. Le Meridien Towers has been designed in full compliance with Islamic values and has received a rapturous response from the global Muslim community.

‘The response we have received from the worldwide Muslim community has been quite simply astounding’ said Omar Ahmed, Communications Director at Investors Provident.

‘We’ve had enquiries from Muslims in Canada, the UK, Morocco, France, Holland, Malaysia, Brunei and even places like Hawaii & the Cayman Islands’

An article in the New York Times recently stated that the most expensive land in the world is in Makkah, and as expected, the most popular times that people have purchased apartments in Le Meridien have been Ramadan and Hajj. ‘Naturally most clients prefer to visit Makkah in Ramadan or Hajj, as the atmosphere is electric but also because the rental returns are very attractive,’ said Omar Ahmed.

Purchasers for the Le Meridien Towers can also benefit from an interest free payment option, which offers 6, 9 or 12 equal monthly instalments. A deposit of 20% is required at the time of purchase.

‘From an Islamic perspective, it’s an ideal investment, not only can you rent out your apartments but it’s an ideal opportunity for Muslims worldwide to visit Makkah every year and stay in their own luxury apartments at affordable prices,’ says Omar Ahmed

Examples of prices for a one-bedroom apartment in Le Meridien Towers: six nights, $10,000; five nights within the first 20 days of Ramadan: $21,000; 30 nights during the hajj, $170,000.

Saudi Prince and NYSE firm involved in Mecca Scandal.

HRH Prince Faisal bin Mugrin bin Abdulaziz, son of Prince Mugrin head of internal security, Al Muttahed a leading Saudi development firm listed on the Saudi Stock Exchange and Northcourse owned by Wyndham a NYSE company have been involved with a property scandal in the holy city of Mecca(Makkah) Saudi Arabia.

Le Meridien Hotel Towers Makkah offered a noble and spiritually rewarding product to Non Saudi's however this blessed gift is nothing but a shameful con.

The product was exclusively marketed globally by North Course based out of Dubai with ambitions of being the leading timeshare advisors, managers and operators in the entire Gulf region.

In cahoots with Saudi firms, (Saudi Amjad/Al Muttahed (a Saudi StockCompany) & Al Fassel Global Services) Northcourse, the creators of this project have been perpetrating a holy sin, marketing and promising the blessed gift of owning property in Holy Makkah close to the prophets Mosque to Non Saudis knowing full well that what they were doing was illegal, immoral and plainly deceiving buyers.

Le Meridien the hotel chain purported to be the timeshare resort managers through disclaimers denies any association with the project

"It has come to the attention of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., (Starwood) that units at Le Meridien Towers Makkah hotel in Saudi Arabia are being offered for sale or rent as condominiums or timeshare by third parties. These timeshare units are not offered, licensed, sponsored or endorsed by Starwood, Le Meridien brand or any Starwood affiliates.

Starwood and Le Meridien brand disclaim any relationship with such timeshare or condominium units."

Apartments have also been sold to non Muslims as North Course claimed the investment would reap huge financial rewards, with the developer (Saudi Amjad / Al Muttahed) being aware to what was going on and signing contracts and issuing title deeds.

How can the Saudi Government condone this kind of scandal, this blasphemy in the Holy City? Northcourse, Almuttahed and Al Fassel Global Services need investigating and serious action taken against them, using the holy city for business purposes and cheating faithful out of money in this way is shameful.

The Saudi, other Gulf authorities and Allah (peace be upon him) should punish the perpetrators of this evil crime. Muslim companies, communities, mosques and Governments around the world should boycott doing business with the companies mentioned above.

help.....

where i we get such details, we think we were victims of this 3rd party issue in Egypt,anyone in Egypt suffering from the same issue

I TOTALLY AGREE AND WOULD

I TOTALLY AGREE AND WOULD EVEN URGE THESE PEOPLE BE NAMED AND SHAMED PUBLICLY

Le Meridien Time Share Units

I was a victim of this scam so I don't recommend buying anything at all in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. The sentiment stated above is all true - the money was stolen, no deeds were received, no phone calls returned, no faxes answered - complete thieves.

For Muslims who are supposed to be extremely honest and fair - especially in the holiest city of the world - it is a real shame. I don't suggest buying anything there at all.

Diplomatic Suite

Salaams,

Diplomatic Suite for sale at the Le Meridien Apartment in Mecca, accommodates 3 persons available for 5 nights from 11th Ramdahan. The lease is available for 25 years, starting from H 1428 (2007 -2008).

Price : $16,500 ONO.

All deeds have been received and signed.

For further queries please contact waheedh@hotmail.co.uk.

Le Meridien Time share

No point buying as deeds are useless. Can not get booking even with a deed developer and meridien not interested in servicing owners. This project as others have stated is a scam.

timeshare

The deeds are useless as developer and meridien wont give booking.

SALAMS ALL- RED ALERT RED ALERT RED ALERT

I HAVE BEEN CHASING THESE PEOPLE FOR OVER THREE YEARS AND HAVENT RECEIVED A PENNY OF MY HALAL MONEY BACK, I THOUGHT SAUDI WAS A PLACE OF MUSLIM PEOPLE DOING GENUINE BUSINESS I DIDNT REALISE ITS ALSO FULL OF THIEVES ESPECIALLY THE ALMUTAHED PEOPLE LIKE MR DOULATLY, MR ABDULLAH AND MR Fayez Bin Awaid Al Shammary AND HIS CO WORKERS.

PLEASE AVOID BUYING ANYTHING AND DEALING WITH AL MUTAHED EVER. I DONT KNOW HOW THEY SLEEP AT NIGHT AFTER STEALING PEOPLES MONEY AND ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO ONLY WANT TO BE IN THE HOUSE OF ALLAH TO PERFORM THEIR BASIC ISLAMIC DUTIES. WHAT REALLY MAKES MY BLOOD BOIL IS THAT SOME DODGY PRINCE OWNS THEM! I AM ASHAMED AT THESE PEOPLE AS THEY ARE THE ONES WHO MAKE MUSLIMS LOOK BAD TO THE WIDER WORLD. THIS IS WHY THE UMMAH IS IN SUCH AN EMBARRASSING MESS. MAY ALLAH SORT THESE INBREDS OUT AND REDEEM THE NAME OF ISLAM

Makkah Timeshare

Assalaamu alaikum

I am saddend to hear the stories of people who've not gotten what they've paid for and any other evil thing that has taken place with regards to the Makkah timeshare program.

I do not represent anyone except my family and myself. I'm an African American Muslim revert, alhamdulillaah. From the time I became Muslim, I wanted to perform hajj and alhamdulillaah I did as a gift from Allaah ( I was sponsored). After performing the hajj I had the to desire to perform umrah as often as Allaah permitted and alhamdulillaah I've gotten that opportunity. How, by being a owner of a Makkah Timeshare property.

This may sound crazy, but we purchased this property site unseen. Never would I've done that in the USA, but I just happened to run across a site that advertised the purchase of such properties. I couldn't believe it, mashaAllaah. I had my husband read the specs and he couldn't believe it. We contacted Investors Provident out of the UK. The agent sent us brochures, etc. So we prayed istikharah and now we're the pround owners of a 25 year lease property (with deeds and signed contracts). MashaAllaah tabarakAllaah

We didn't go visit the first year of the completed project, . We hadn't prepared to travel to Saudi on our own. We went to check on our property for the first time this past year 2008 and are planning to go this year 2009 inshaAllaah.

We own two weeks during Muharram, but last year when we were making arrangements, we found that the embassy wasn't giving out visas in Muharram. I got on the phone, called and emailed Al-Muttahed and was told that it was ok and that we could come whenever we got our visas. We just needed to give them a months notice for reservations. Alhamdulillaah we went and performed umrah last year while staying in our suite in Makkah. We aslo took my grandsons (ages 7/8). Also, because we didn't go the first year, we still had those two weeks and we could even defer those weeks for a later time (year, month, etc.).

I am so sorry for what has happened to many of you, but I just couldn't sit by and not speak about my authentic experience. Not everyone has had a bad experience or been ripped off.

I pray that Allaah rectify the affairs of all those who've been mistreated and had monies taken with nothing in return. Remember no one gets away. They will pay. We must also look to find as much as we can of the story.

I pray that Allaah continues to shower His bounties and mercy upon my family and me, ameen.

Deeds

According to Saudi Law it is not permissible for Non Saudi Nationals to

1. Own
2. Rent
3. Lease
4. Have right of use

Of ANY property in Mecca

The purchase of these units was supposed to give us non Saudi’s the right to own and use the apartments be it for 25 years for part or whole OWNERSHIP of the property in Mecca. The above law could be the reason why we have to get our own visa despite assurances when buying that we would have an automatic right to an entry visa as we OWN property there.

The paperwork or deeds as AlMuttahed refer to and issued by them are not legal, this has been verified by my US attorneys. This could explain why mine and I trust all others do not bear any Saudi Government registration or notary public stamps.

The above concerns are highlighted further by the fact that

1. The papers issued are not bankable
2. Units can not be rented
3. Units can not be sold

We have all been cheated I have taken this issue up with the Saudi embassy in DC they spoke very nicely on the phone and requested documentation which was provided now I am chasing them a resolution.

Hi, There is some confusion

Hi,

There is some confusion here - the issue with legality and cheating is for the Meridien project.

Zam Zam is legal and OK as it falls under WAQF

The Saudi Real Estate Law

Regulation of Ownership and Investment in Real Estate by Non-Saudis

ARTICLE (5)

With the exception of a transfer through inheritance, Non-Saudi may not obtain the title, easement or use of real estate located within the city limits of Mecca and Medina. This excludes obtaining title if it is associated with endowing (Waqf) the owned real estate, according to Sharia Islamic Rules, to a certain Saudi Agency, provided that the Supreme Council of Endowment shall have the custodial rights to the endowed property.

Negative List (Activities excluded from Foreign Investment)

The Supreme Economic council (SEC) approved the list of economic sectors from which foreign investors will be excluded under the new Foreign Investment Law. The economic activities that are not open to foreign investors are:

Real estate investment in Makkah and Madina.

Tourist orientation and guidance services related to Hajj and Umrah

Hope this clears this up.

Makkah time share

I had similar good experience last year but they now want the deed/contract back. Have they contacted you as well, please let me know.

Almuslim

Sham or Scam

AsSalaamu alaikum

This is an update to my previous comment.

We did goforumrah this year, but we didn't stay at the timeshare, because they've requested the contracts and deeds back. AlMuttahed said that they bought the property from Amjad and do not honor the timeshare program.

We had a friendof ours that lives in Madinah and worksin Riyadh deliver the documents. We were toldit would take upto90days before we receive a refund.

As of today, we haven't heard from them nor received any refund. We'restill within the 90 day period. I think we're about the 60 day mark.

InshaAllaah, we'll call them tomorrow to get an update.

Anyway, I wouldn't trust any of them (i.e.ZamZam). If you have any investment with them, ask for your money back or sell it back to them. Don't try to sell it to someone else, because I don't think they'll be able to use the property.

Don't buy from anyone trying to sell a timeshare there. As I said, you more than likely won't be able to use it and may end up trying to get your money back like the rest of us.

I'm not worried, fore qiyyamis is true and all those that don't fear that day and take peoples money will have to pay then. So they either pay now or pay later. Either way they're going to pay. No one gets away.

Amjad is a subsiduary of Al

Amjad is a subsiduary of Al Muttahed a Saudi Stock firm. They transferred ownership as they wanted to raise money by selling shares. So they are liars the reason why we can't use it is that it is against the law as stated on this page nothing to do with transfer of ownership which was illegal since they did not own the property we did...they have stolen from us using the holy city as bait....people that do this have no moral values thus their action or inaction in refunding our money or even the curtosy of returning our calls, fax and email shows they are insincere dogs
